, there is a defense called the insanity defense which never works as most of us know because we don't recognize it. should we recognize it, that's an interesting question. should we have a more robust concept of diminished responsibility in light of the understanding that some people have less control over their preferences and desires or should we have better sentencing schemes or get rid of incarceration and come up with different models of trying to deal with punishment once we understand people have wrong selections. i think those are all interesting questions, but is there free will? well, the fact that almost everybody in the audience raised either their right or left hand contemplated it and were quickly able to act and respond. that to me says, yes, there is. now what do we want to do about it? now that we understand that those of us in the audience or up here that like chocolate cake may not have control over it, how do we want to account for that if at all in the criminal justice system? to date, we haven't. in the future, we may wish to. >> i agree with that. i think that, first of all,
of the book last line of defense. >> good to be with you. >> last line of defense may be in the state level. >> that is thethesis of the book we have writ yen comes out on february 12th, next month. we are living with it, with the obama administration and we have another four years to go now . what we have done, successfully in some cases and not in others to fight back is to take them to court. when the environmental protection agency over steps its legal boundaries we sue them and we recently won a case of the epa that is employment prevention agency because they are so good at that. they are very good at that and our co-plaintiff was a democratic board of supervisor, biggest county of virginia where i grew up. we saved the taxpayer in fairfax county $250 million and our state department of transportation another 70 million. it was enormous win and it was an experiment by the epa, where we said and fairfax county said they are breaking the law. they said it is another way of doing what we are doing for 40 years and the court agreed with us. one of the great things about winning the federa
here with a trial by judge? a surprise turn has leopold and his two defense attorneys opted for a trial by judge, not jury. this follow as lengthy process where over 300 people filled out questionnaires and about 100 perspective jurors were interviewed in person. >> i have no knowledge of anything. >> reporter: leopold is accused of misusing his executive security. the indictment alleges officers lied lookout while he had section in a vehicle and while he stole campaign signs and that all of it was done on county time with county tax dollars. >> i don't think so. i think this would be a better understood trial than having the jurors there. >> reporter: he doesn't think a trial heard by a judge would weaken the outcome. leopold is charged with one count of fraud for misusing county dollars. judge dennis sweeney will determine his fate while leopold's peers return to a normal life. opening arguments are scheduled for 9 monday morning. >> a baltimore city teenager accused of impers nateing a police officer. >> the school refuses to tells details about the case is. we found out how the stud
weapons, we think it is likely the supreme court will uphold these provisions. in defense of those who do seem confused about the nature of our second amendment rights, the supreme court has not done a great job of clarifying what is the scope of our second amendment rights. as most of you know, in 2008, the supreme court held that the second amendment protects the right of individuals to have guns for personal protection. two years after that case, it struck down a lot in washington, d.c., that banned handguns and made it unlawful for you to use a shotgun or rifle for self-defense. two years after that the supreme court held the second amendment similarly applied to state and local governments and effectively declared chicago's ban on handguns unconstitutional. advocates make it clear exactly how the courts should go about interpreting the second amendment and applying it to other gun-control laws. it is one thing to identify a right in the constitution, but where the rubber hits the road is figuring out which laws are constitutional and which laws are unconstitutional, so they asked the
deserves and they were heard scream, long live justice. defense lawyers argued that mubarak didn't know about the killings and he didn't direct the killings on protestors two years ago. the judge agreed that mubarak and former chief of security will be re-tried along with several others who were part of the government that were acquitted during the first trial. as of now, there has not been a trial set but mubarak remains in jail temporarily and facing charges of corruption. it was reported that he was on deathbed and health dleipg. there were reports he had fallen and broken ribs but we don't know what health he is right now. it is apparently declining. over the last two years we've seen a lot of turmoil and violence and a lot of chaos in egypt and across egypt. whether or not this will trigger new rounds of protests isn't clear, but certainly illicit do little to help stabilize this country going forward. >> gregg: thank you. >> arthel: it's been three years since the devastating earthquake hit the island of haiti killing more than 300,000 people. our own greta van susteren traveled t
secretary of defense leon panetta had to say in london today. >> we cannot accept attacks against our citizens in our interests abroad. neither can we accept an al-qaeda safe haven anywhere in the world. >> panetta refused to criticize the algerian security forces. some have said they were too heavy handed in their mission against the militants holding the hostages. at this very melt we're told they continue to mop up that energy facility. it had been booby trapped with mines and explosives by the militants and heather, yes, the grim death toll grows, or the fear of those deaths, anyway. the u.k., norway, and japan are now saying that 20 of their citizens are unaccounted for and feared dead. and we're waiting on word from the u.s. officials. back to you. >> heather: greg palkot live for us. we'll have much more on this coming up with a former c.i.a. operative who has participated in numerous operations in algeria. so stay tuned for that. gregg? >> gregg: and the first lady kicking off the inaugural weekend with a national day of service, doing their part at an elementary school in was
a final assault on the complex and now britain's defense secretary says the military operation appears to be over. our greg palkot is following it all live from london. how is everybody, greg. >> reporter: jamie, kelly, that's the big question right now. the algerian prime minister spoke with u.k. prime minister david cameron minutes ago and he, too, confirmed the final assault is over and there is that one report perhaps more americans were free today. and let's recount the event of today. algerian special forces stormed where the al-qaeda linked militants were finally holed up, apparently with explosives, apparently with heavy guns, and with hostages. it was a bloody scene. the algerian government says that 11 militants were killed, apparently the last militants there, but also, the seven foreign hostages were killed. now, the reuters news agency quoting a security source says that 16 foreign hostages were freed today and included in that number, two americans. but as we've noted it's not yet confirmed by washington, and or for that matter, picked up by other media agencies. one ame

support. speaking in spain, defense secretary panetta said the u.s. is considering french requests for additional military help. >> we are discussing in washington some of the requests that have been made to determine exactly what assistance we can provide. our goal is to try to do what we can to provide whatever assistance is necessary in order to help them in that effort. specifically, in what areas is still something under discussion. >> the washington post reports france has asked for u.s. intelligence that could be used for targeting purposes. a request that could raise questions under international law. the u.s. is also reportedly considering whether to help france transport its troops in military supplies. the obama administration is said to be wary of deepening its involvement in mali after having trained military leaders that ended up staging a coup that -- and even joining the rebels fight. u.s.-backed french strikes in mali have already killed a reported 11 civilians, including three children. on tuesday, an amnesty international spokesperson called for the deployment of

that they have under the second amendment and who are involved in the shooting sports or use firearms for self-defense and we think that they will be heard. >> and when you look at the power, one of the things that you said when you came in is that our number one political priority is to defeat the president for a second term, and that didn't happen. you also lost some high profile senate races that you invested in. what does that say about the power -- because there are a lot of people out there who say, look, this has changed, that newtown has changed public sentiment, and it has changed the mood on capitol hill, and yet you think that the nra has the power to block this? >> the nra doesn't have the power, be but those americans who believe in the second amendment do. the races that were decided this year, weren't decided on the second amendment issues as you well know and not discussed. the president discussed he would never take your rifle or sidearm and not interfere with your second amendment right, and in those races where there is a clear choice and let me give you an example. we were very inv
absurd defenses by the republicans, which i'll get to in a second. ana kasparian joins me here. first let's start with president obama's press conference today. let me show you what he said. >> obama: they are common sense measures. they have the support of the majority of the american people. yet, that doesn't mean that any of this will be easy to enact or implement. if it were we would already have universal background check. the ban on assault weapons and high capacity magazines would never have been allowed to expire. it will depend on congressional action. they need to bring it up for a vote, and the american people need to make sure that they do. >> cenk: well, president obama's proposals were strong today including a ban on new assault weapons limits on high capacity magazines, expanded background checks and tougher gun trafficking laws. anna, what else did he do? >> those are proposals and they do need to undergo congressional apowers. however he passed 23 executive actions. as he was signing those actions let's take a look at the video he did so with children behind him. this was
disingenuous, and i'm being polite. if anybody was listening to the defense appropriation bill at the end of last year, just before they let us go over the fiscal cliff, republicans added $20 billion more than what the president asked for for the defense appropriation bill. this is the 20% there are going to have to cut during sequestration. now the defense department, if you keep the continuing resolution versus making a budget, they will get $680 billion this year. $20 billion more than what they ask for. yet they cannot pass a sandy bill. america, wake up. republicans that are in charge, and i guess you ququality party, they're just out to take our money. the poor and disenfranchised, they just laugh and say get a job, and they will not give you a job. host: on twitter -- in michigan on the independent line is terry. caller: good morning and thank you for taking my call and for having a program. i just want to say that i do think, from the perspective of spending, there has been a lot of conversation on the bell avenue side and the president did not get what he wanted -- on the revenue

defensively in the outfield, infield defense will be as good, if not better. our catching situation will still be solid. our rotation will be one more year experience. we'll be counting less on the three-run home run. we can manufacture runs more. we'll steal more bases. we'll be faster and more athletic than in the past and our bullpen is going to be extremely difficult to deal with for other clubs. >> fans, go ahead and get those season tickets. they sound pretty good. >>> when we come back, the terps face a critical acc test tomorrow. we'll hear from head coach mark turgeon after the break. but don't take our word for it -- ask a real fios customer. ask me why fiber optics matters. ask me about the upload speeds -- they're sick!

have people recognize that when it comes to defense spending. some of the same people say we have to cut spending or complain that government jobs don't do anything, but when it comes to the defense contractor in their district, they think it is an important part of the economy in their district and that we should not stop spending on that. let's just make sure we're not spending on those other people. [no audio] my hope is that common sense prevails. that is always my preference. i think that would be the preference of the american people and it would be good for the economy. let me just repeat. if the issue is deficit reduction, getting our deficit sustainable over time, getting our debt in a sustainable place, then democrats and republicans in congress will have a partner in me. we could achieve that fairly quickly. we know what the numbers are and we know what needs to be done. we know what a balanced approach would take and we have done half of the deficit reduction we need to stabilize. there has probably been more pain and trauma in getting there than we needed. finishing t
is the military telling you? >> reporter: well, a defense official i just spoke with a few minutes ago said this is clearly an act of terrorism and that was echoedamplified by leon panetta, he's meeting with nato allies. and he said clearly this was a terrorist act, this kidnapping including some american hostages. right now, from sources that we are speaking with, africa command is taking the lead on this from the military side. but they are mostly conferring with the state department and the fbi as the state department sifts through the information and works with the algerians to get the best available information on what is going on the ground. there are some military assets that are somewhat close. there are marine, fleet anti-terrorism teams in italy. there is also air force surveillance aircraft that could be available out of aviano, also in italy. there are some military assets in the area. but the defense official i spoke with said right now the best thing is to get all the information they can about what is going on, on the ground. in other words, he said how many bad guys are ther

are still held. our defense secretary, leon panetta, addressed the crisis a short time ago. >> terrorists should be on notice that they will find no sanctuary, no refuge, not in algeria, not in north africa, not anywhere. jenna: the defense secretary speaking in london there. terrorists affiliated with al qaeda are holed up at that gas plant. they have been there now for three days, demanding an end to the anti-terror campaign playing out right now in neighboring mali. that big area of north africa is part of what we're seeing with this rise of al qaeda in that continent. chief washington correspondent james rosen is live in our d.c. bureau. james, we talked about this as a very fluid, very dangerous situation. what do we now know? >> reporter: jenna, good afternoon. white house officials are now saying president obama is receiving regular updates on this situation which remains as you say ongoing and sensetive. the numbers involved here have varied wildly with the latest from algeria's state news service now saying nearly 100 of 132 hostages seized have been freed. that word comes after
of terrific defense. the solving of this problem -- let me see if i can get this clear for you. this is peter, right? what i was pointing out is that in california we have a responsibility to make sure that every weapon is transferred. i was a firearms license dealer for 25 years so i know what i am talking about. the result of that is -- you brought up the gun show loophole, which is important. people in other states can go and buy weapons in virginia, but it in the back of their car and take it across to pennsylvania. i was watching c-span earlier this morning. the mayor of philadelphia said they have guns were the criminals are renting guns they have bought in virginia. it is very important which has not been addressed, if you are going to register firearms, it has to be across the board. that means for people who are police officers, people who are bureaucrats, people who are elected officials -- anyone. you cannot have a two tiered system where half of the people that are just civilians have to abide by the laws and everybody else does not. one of the most important factors that each fir
authorizes spending. they order me to spend. they tell me you need to fund our defense department at such and such a level. you need to send out social security checks. you need to make sure that your paying to care for our veterans. they lay all this out for me. and because they have the spending power. and so i am required by law to go ahead and pay these bills. >> many republicans are willing to just let it all burn to the ground. politico reported more and morehouse republicans are planning to damage the economy. gop officials said more than half of their members are prepared to allow default unless president obama agrees to dramatic cuts. he has repeatedly said he opposes. john boehner does not have any clout with the tea party members of the congress. this is the big problem. here comes congressman ralph hall of texas. he's got a rather radical view of what it means to raise the debt ceiling. >> we made a mistake when we increased the debt limit the first time and gave this guy all the money to buy votes with. we shouldn't make the mistake now. >> this is a guy walking into
in chief trusts his secretary of defense, trusts his commanders. did you sense there was a deficit of trust between, say, you and the president early on? in afghanistan? >> if you think of any complex endeavor that you're a part of, and you're going to do it with a team of people, if you don't trust them at the outset, you're going to have to develop trust very quickly. >> and he never chose you in this case. do you think that's the issue? >> i think he was involved. i was chosen by secretary gates, and clearly approved by the president. so i wases his commander. i replaced general mckiran in june of 2010. i think, though, there are a number of things. i think people underestimate the difference between the cultures of the civilian culture and military culture. it's not an opposition. they are just different. so they use different words, different backgrounds. they have a different understanding sometimes of history. plus a new administration comes in, any new administration, doesn't matter which party. and they've got to form a team and they're trying to internally form a team and also try
